After they are fixed I expect that he'll write back complaining that they're too harsh sounding now.
Put the fuses back in!

When I got my 3.6's I pulled the fuses from the tweeters, listened to the result, then tried pulling the midrange fuses (putting the tweeters back on line) and listened.
There's no way that a blown fuse could be accepted as "sounding fine".

Wow, that's cheaper than what it cost me to buy two replacements w/core return for my speakers. The shipping (round trip) was $190 and the ribbons were $300 IIRC. His dealer would be making a house call and installing for free, as well.

Funny that he didn't notice the lack of high notes, maybe his ears lost their ability to hear the ribbons before they failed.

3.7i's sound dull? Kind of hard to believe but another set of Maggies that have been hacked so who knows. My old 3.5R's totally stock with no delam issues sound terrific so no way his should be dull but then again his wife and son said so. Wonder what he is driving them with maybe a Radio Shack 20 WPC receiver?

And a dealer that makes house calls? Like old school Doctors that come to you. This is exactly what gives legit companies a bad name when this owner should be looking in his own mirror.

Michael is a unique dealer. Last year he posted that he had a used CCR for sale. I replied and he was at my house with it 10 minutes later :-)

Sharing that publicly helps deal with having to deal with a Rude, Ungrateful jackwagon... some "customers" just aren't worth it... but some people just soldier on and dole out Grace, even when it isn't appreciated or reciprocated.

I removed the garbage terminal plate with all those garbage connections years ago. I wired straight into new cardas speaker terminals and never looked back. I then sold those speakers after 5 years and did the same thing to my 3.7i maggies. Still after about 8 years have had zero issues. Then again, I use high quality amps.

Like the dealer states: he can't tell if the tweeters are working or not, but he could hear the difference the fuses made. Ok.

He can't even figure out the difference between the fuse and the tweeter.
